V4L Contemporary Art Umbrella

Together with my sweet Icelandic Viking sugar buns, Árni Guðmundsson, we organize several programs to deliver contemporary art to the middle of nowhere.  We call this project "Virginia is for Lovers", but because the Virginia Tourism Board already has a grip on that phrase, and because we are actually physically located in West Virginia, we just call it V4L. Not to be confused with "Vape 4 Life", which as far as I know has no interest in contemporary art.  Much like our neighbors.

  • Virginia is for Lovers Artist(s) in Residence Program (V4L AIR)

For romantic couples who collaborate artistically

  • Wild, Wonderful Redneck Residency (WWRR)   

Rural Artist-in-Residence program requiring interaction, inspiration, and partying with the local community in Bakerton, West Virginia.

  • V4L Art Valet

Selling  multiples by local and international artists out of a 1963 Airstream trailer, the Art Cart travels to fairs, festivals, wineries, breweries, and distilleries in the Loudoun, VA wine country and beyond.

  • Contemporary and Conceptual Art Lecture and Workshop Series

Just what it says.
